Former Chiefs WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling is now a Buffalo Bill, having signed a one-year deal with Kansas City's AFC rival on Tuesday.

The deep threat struggled throughout the regular season but came up clutch in the playoffs, leaving Kansas City with a pair of Super Bowl rings. He took to social media for his first public comments after the deal, signaling "the marathon continues" with an emoji, a message popularized by the late great Nipsey Hussle.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling Responds to Bills Contract

Valdes-Scanting began his career catching passes from Aaron Rodgers. He then joined Patrick Mahomes in Kansas City and now goes to Josh Allen with Buffalo. That's a murderer's row of QBs to catch passes with, and both Rodgers and Mahomes won MVP awards while throwing to #11.

There's a clear path to playing time for Valdes-Scantling too. Khalil Shakir, Curtis Samuel, and rookie Keon Coleman figure to lead the wide receiver room now that Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis are both gone. None of those three represent a traditional vertical threat, so Valdes-Scantling has a natural role to fill.

TEs Dalton Kincaid and Dawson Knox will be factors in the passing game, as will RB James Cook, though I expect Valdes-Scantling to improve on the career-worst 315 receiving yards he amassed in 2023.

Buffalo hosts Kansas City at some point this year. We'll find out exactly when during the schedule release on Wednesday, but Valdes-Scantling will indeed get an opportunity to face his former team.

Either way, Valdes-Scantling leaves Kansas City as a two-time champion and reliable playoff threat, though I don't imagine he'll achieve that same level of postseason success at his new home.
